Message from the Chief

Texas State’s University Police Department (UPD) is a full-service agency that provides law enforcement and crime prevention for the university community. Our officers are trained and certified by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education. UPD has an outstanding record of minimizing crime on campus. In an emergency, dial 911 from any phone on campus or find a yellow emergency phone. Our response time for emergencies is normally less than two minutes. If you need general information or nonemergency service from UPD, please call 512.245.2805 and talk to one of our state-certified dispatchers. Our response time for report calls is normally about four minutes. We work to keep you safe and secure at Texas State.

Best regards,

Ralph C. Meyer

Director, University Police Department
